Smoked Tails/LED Strip (finally done my first jeep mods)
 
3 Attachment(s)
May be a little redundant, but I felt like since these were my first 2 jeep mods, I'd put them in their own thread instead of "what I did today" :D

did a few layers of nite shade on the tails, and then a few gloss layers. then I sand(ed?), buffed, compounded, and here we are.

the LED bar I actually found at an auto parts store, got the idea from logan95's old ride, but since I'm waiting on white LED taglights, plus my affinity to white LED in general, I wanted to keep it all matching pretty well.

hope you guys dig it! the camera doesn't do the LED's justice, they're really amazingly bright and each individual bulb really sticks out. I'll take some daylight pics tomorrow so I can get a better exposure.


would LOVE some feedback from you guys! thanks!

I think it'll look better if you get the LED license plate bulbs to match ;)

I like it though. Are they a tight fit down there from the lift gate?

And of course, tail lights look great tinted!!

waiting for them in the mail!

and thanks guys. the fit isn't too tight, there's actually a lot of space behind there, you can't really tell unless you're looking at it without the tails in, but I noticed it and got to brainstorming, so its a few plastic L-brackets holding them on.

I'm at work now, I'll post up some photos later. I wired them to the tag light/glass opener line. white/purple is the tag light, red/purple being the glass button. made that mistake the first time lol.

figured that's good a place as any since they go on and off with the tails/parking lights

Yeah, def do red with the brakes since any white showing from behind while driving is illegal.
